Re-Opening November 1st!

The COVID-19 Committee has worked hard the last few months by gathering information and best practices for the safest way possible for CHWUC to reopen. We know other churches have already done this but we needed guidelines that would suit CHWUC. We believe we have done this and at the Board Meeting on September 16ththe plan was approved for an opening date of November 1st, 2020 at 10:30am.

It will be our opportunity to gather and celebrate our faith together again in person AND via live-stream online.

There will be protocols and guidelines to follow for those who wish to attend church service in person. Those can be found below:

It is with great sorrow that we say good-bye to our big-hearted and fun loving caretaker, Paul.  All of us send our support and love to Susan, the family and all of Paul’s loved ones.

His funeral will be held this Thursday, September 24th in the Sanctuary and will be by invitation only.  However, the service will be live streamed via YouTube for everyone to watch. Once the link is created, it will be sent out to all and posted here.

Chakradance Unplugged MONDAY 28 OCTOBER 7:30PM

Allow Michelle Anstey to introduce you to CHAKRADANCE™ 7 Keys to Freedom, a well-being movement practice that uses spontaneous dance, to specific chakra-resonant music, for the purpose of healing and re-tuning your whole energy system.

At the heart of Chakradance is the music.

There is no right or wrong way to move your body. It’s a journey of self-discovery.

Think of it as a ‘dynamic moving meditation to music’… or as ‘the musical sister of yoga’ (without the set-piece poses or asanas). The experience concludes with participants creating a personal mandala, to help ‘anchor’ their experience and for their own personal use in reflecting on the class in the following days.

Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water.

No dance or artistic ability is required, EVERYONE IS WELCOME!!
